The funny thing about working in the beauty department is that everyone always
comes to us for gift advice. Sure, the fashion girls know a thing or two about how to pair pants with flatforms — or even how to convincingly pull off a "party coat
" — but it's us they come running to before heading off to a friend's birthday party, telling us all about the lucky giftee-to-be and what they might like.
That's what gave us the idea to put together a list of pretty much everyone you could possibly shop for this holiday season — and what to get them. As our fashion-department friends will agree, beauty gifts are delightful because you're giving the recipient an opportunity to spend a little more time on themselves, with something they may not have bought on their own. Plus, people are far more likely to experiment with a lip color or perfume than with, say, their jewelry. Beauty is inherently more ephemeral — it all washes off at the end of the day.
Ahead, we chose some top-notch finds for everyone from your grandmother to your landlord — so you can cover all your bases. If we go over your budget, you can check out our nice little under-$20 list
